One of the best UI/UX idea blogging sites for mobiles with new entries added every week.

You also have a Creative Fields section where you can also get inspired for your own design of your own products, which can be useful when redesigning an app from the ground up.
By far this is the densest inspirational shopping centre for portable app design. If you are a UI artist with an interest in movement, you will find many suggestions on this website. I love my design impulse team, it' called dribbble. However, I find that the searching function works really well, so you can enter any keyword combinations for UI/UX inspection and probably find some great things.
It' s the biggest new design library on the web, and if you have never searched dribbble before, I strongly suggest you give it a try. The Behance is great to look for and offers a thousand different design options for your app. Portable interfaces are like replicable user interfaces that you can use in any environment.

Recently I came across Mozaic and it is one of my new favourite websites. Another inspiring galery for portable UI/UX, but it does cover everything from simple phone applications to customized gaming interfaces. The majority of contributions are based on actual screen shots, but some show mock-up themes that have been designed for fictitious project according to customer wishes.
Each user interface pattern is organised by tag such as logon screen, timeline, message user and other popular apps. This page is manually cured, but you can send your own screen shots if you have an app or moodup that you would like to include in the galery. I have to say with a grand totale of 6,600 design and countings,ollect UI could be one of the biggest inspirational art sites on the web.
There are a wide range of interface options for desktops, fast-response Web sites and more. I think, however, that this makes the search for inspirations much simpler, as only the top photos of DriveBble are included in the album. A few designer like the dribble-style design, but many like to get true screen captures from them. I am now working on Inspired UI, a web based web based shopping cart with inspirations for Inspired UI app.

That means that you can much more easily imitate the user interfaces in your own design, but you can also find your creative limits somewhat restricted. Inspired UI provides a hands-on design inspirational paradigm.
They may not get the most imaginative looks, but you will find ports from genuine apps that are used by genuine humans every single day. What's more, you'll find a lot of different interface options that are not only the most imaginative, but also the most fun to use.

Each input comes from true app screen shots and focuses on various issues such as warnings, forms input, picture galeries, and tonnes of other UI items.
You also have an email newsletters with new design idea, but that won't be useful for everyone. A lot of designer just want to get inspired for their actual projects and continue. However, the UI Garage email is a good option if you are looking for inspirational ideas for your incoming email. After all, I enjoy browsing through design blog's just to see what I can find.
Here Google is your best buddy when you get into "Design Blog" + Google Mobility to see what kind of gallery you see. I am always looking for app icon mobiles and certain pages like crash screen. Above mentioned galeries are awesome, but you can also find unbelievable ressources on top design blogging.
In fact, some even concentrate on inspiring the user interface so that they have their own gallery/spiration category. Three of my favourites are here: Since all three are mainly web design blog entries, you'll find many web design inspirational art sites blended with portable UI/UX art sites. If you still can't find what you're looking for, click Google and find your way to the user interface of your portable app.
